Los Angeles / Berlin, March 26, 2020 -- We practice social distancing, have put our travel plans on hold, stay in and have caught up on all Netflix movies (yes, including Babylon Berlin). It is again time for some excitement and – as always - Berlin offers just what it takes: online clubbing, classical music and culture.
Check out these three ways to dive into Berlin from the comfort of home:
Berlin Philharmonics Digital Concert Hall now free of charge The Philharmonic Orchestra Berlin – one of the best and most applauded orchestras in the world - is closed until 19 April (or further notice) to help contain the corona virus; however, classical music fans can enjoy beautiful and humbling classical music virtually and free of charge in the Digital Concert Hall. Vouchers and more information here. Further live streams from Berlin’s stages here.
Solo clubbing: Live from Berlin right into your living room For an über-social city known for its legendary night life, the temporary shut-down of the entire club culture might seem a tough challenge. But, no worries: Keep dancing, as Berlin declares it´s support and solidarity by getting the biggest digital club to your home. United We Stream in alliance with ARTE Concert is putting its whole spectrum and diversity on one channel, including Live DJ-sets, music and performances.
As the club scene is financially hurting, there’s a button for donations, to keep it all going.
Tour Bode Museum – Architecture and Collections
Visitors can now explore 35 rooms of Berlin's Bode Museum virtually. The Bode Museum is situated at the tip of famed Museum Island, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of Berlin’s top tourism sites. The virtual tour seamlessly stitches together 62 photographs, each providing a 360° panorama. The final product captures nearly the entire ground floor of the museum as well as a great deal of the first floor. The virtual tour also provides information on each of the 850 photographed sculptures and paintings, and over 300 links to SMB-digital, the online database of the national Museums Berlin.
